She was sunk in battle by the USS Kearsarge in June 1864 at the Battle of Cherbourg outside the port of Cherbourg, France.
The HMS St. Lawrence was a wooden warship used in the war of 1812. The first Royal navy ship that participated in a line of battle formation. A 112-gun first-rate wooden warship that served on Canada's Lake Ontario during the War of 1812.
